Jodi Schlitt

Front Desk Reception and Office Coordinator

Jodi recently moved to White Rock and is loving it! In Airdrie AB Jodi had a home salon, where she was a Certified Master Pedicurist and Nail Tech, her main focus was safe and healthy foot care for diabetics & seniors. Her background of customer service naturally lead her into seeking work that fulfills her passion for helping people.


Throughout her life she has witnessed and felt the benefits of Chiropractic care for both herself and her family.  Specifically her son who struggled with some health issues but after seeking the expertise of their family Chiropractor he no longer had extra visits to doctors and specialists.


When Jodi isn’t in the office assisting the awesome In-Joy Life members she can be found in the beautiful BC outdoors. Golfing, camping, skiing & skating are just a few activities she partakes in.  Early morning walks to view the sunrise from the White Rock pier is her absolute favorite.  Jodi loves to bake and cook, but is currently adjusting to cooking for two,  as their three adult children are still in AB pursuing education and exciting careers. 


Jodi is stationed as the Front Desk Coordinator and can’t wait to welcome new and existing members to In-Joy Life Chiropractic and Laser Care.
